Borough Hall Decision Postponed
There are more delays regarding where to place Hightstown's municipal departments.
According to centraljersey.com, Hightstown had received one bid to provide a temporary modular facility to be used as a new Borough Hall. However, rather than accept or reject the bid, the council tabled a decision.
The council has been considering leasing land owned by the Rug Mill, but a lease for the property has not been worked out yet, said Centraljersey.com.
The bid came in from MobileaseModular Space Inc, the centraljersey.com article said, bidding in at $159,200 for an administrative temporary facility; and $275,100 for a module police unit. Mobilease is based in West Deptford.
Hightstown Borough Hall and the police department were damaged in 2011 during Hurricane Irene, when Peddie Lake crested, causing several feet of water to flood buildings in downtown Hightstown.
